  • 6 AMERICAN troops killed By Taliban, After Obama Stated They were an important Partner for...

    Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah is fraternizing with the enemy! His treason should be apparent to all. If not, I've broken it down earlier by demonstrating his treason with the Muslim Brotherhood, as constitutionally defined, here. However, claiming that the Taliban is an important partner for peace in Afghanistan is like saying that Hannibal Lecter is a friend of vegetarians. Yet, that's just what the Obama administration did just before six American troops were killed by those "important partners." According to Pakistani Today: US is no longer conducting counter-terrorism operations against the Taliban in Afghanistan because it views the group...

    Long before the day I was graciously afforded the opportunity to write on this blog I have been contemptuous of Barack Obama. Time has only heightened that contempt. Two stories that parallel each other demonstrate just how badly Barack Obama will compromise the US for the sake of his hubris. The jihadista of San Bernardino, Malik Tashfeen, passed three DHS background checks when immigrating to the United States. The Obama administration looks the other way when it comes to social media postings- on the part of immigrants. Tashfeen openly supported violent jihad but in the Obama regime that's not a...

    On Tuesday, the Superintendent of the Los Angeles Unified School District announced that all schools would be shut down today due to an unspecified terror threat. According to ABC News, that threat also carries “unknown credibility.” Bus drivers say they have been returned to their bus depots. LAUSD is the nation’s second-largest school district, with 640,000 students and 900 schools; children range from kindergarten to 12th grade.

    The main Western-backed Arab rebel group in Syria appears on the verge of collapse because of low morale, desertions, and distrust of its leaders by the rank and file, threatening U.S. efforts to put together a ground force capable of defeating the Islamic State and negotiating an end to the Syrian civil war. "After five years of this war, the people are just tired ... and so are our fighters," said Jaseen Salabeh, a volunteer in the Free Syrian Army, which was formed in September 2011 by defectors from the army of Syrian President Bashar Assad. The Free Syrian Army,...

About 71 percent of Americans say that the “shootings and random acts of violence that took place this year in Charleston, S.C., Oregon , Colorado, and the terrorist shootings in San Bernardino, California — are now are now a permanent part of American life.” Domestic terrorism and national security have more than doubled this year and now are the...

    President Obama made a pitch Tuesday for Americans to remember their immigrant roots, describing the U.S. as the traditional home for refugees fleeing the world's worst troubles. He compared today's climate of fear over immigration and terrorism to what he called some of the darkest days of the country's immigrant history, such as when black Africans were brought in the slave trade, when Irish and Chinese faced discrimination and when Japanese were pushed into internment camps during World War II. "In the Syrian refugee of today we should see the Jewish refugee of World War II," the president said as...

    Earlier today EW Jackson hosted a conference call with Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz.

Cruz then touched on his continued fight to defend traditional marriage. His opening was short and narrowly focused as he seemed genuinely more interested in taking questions than filling the time up with prepared talking points, which caught me as unexpected and a...

    A top White House adviser said Sunday that President Obama still plans to accept 10,000 Syrian refugees even as Republicans insisted that it's all but impossible to stop terrorists from hiding among the migrants. "We're still planning to take in Syrian refugees," Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes said on "Fox News Sunday." One of the terrorists in Friday's deadly attacks on Paris reportedly may have used a Syrian passport to enter Europe with a flood of refugees, but Mr. Rhodes expressed confidence in the background-check system. "We have very robust vetting procedures for those refugees. It involves our intelligence...

The retired neurosurgeon and surging 2016 Republican candidate offered another controversial stance about Islam in America on Sunday, saying that he's open to considering religion as probably cause for searches. When asked on ABC's "This Week" if he would listen to arguments from people advocating that one's religion could provide probable cause to search the emails and calls of Syrian refugees being let into the U.S., Carson answered in the affirmative. "I personally don't feel that way, but I would certainly be willing to listen to somebody who...

    The GOP establishment is apparently so worried about Donald Trump that its working with Democrats and even Islamists to attack nice-guy Dr. Ben Carson. By attacking Carson as anti-Muslim, it may be possible to shift some of Trumps evangelical and social-conservative supporters over to join Carsons team, just a few days after Trump told evangelicals that Im one of you. The GOPs establishment loser in 2012, Gov. Mitt Romney, joined in late Monday, with a tweet saying Of course, no religious test for the presidencyevery faith adds to our national character.

As Democrats look ahead to 2016 and imagine the coming campaign of a yet-to-be-chosen nominee, Obama risks being written off by all parties as irrelevant. Having now lost both houses of Congress, Obama has lost the platform from which he can set the agenda. Soon, his party will choose a new leader to move forward, and he will be a thing of the past. This means Obama must now go to greater lengths...

Perhaps doubts are cast that a Muslim could actually become president, but the same was once said about Catholics and people of color. One stumbling block...

Russia and China, meanwhile, look unlikely to withdraw their customary support for Tehran, complicating any attempt to strengthen U.N. sanctions. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said there was credible evidence that Iran carried out activities relevant to the development of a nuclear device as part of a structured program until the end of 2003 when Iran is known to have...

Once you start giving to the crowd, you cant stop giving. In giving his speech the president may have done three things, none of which he quite intended. First, he has essentially denounced as evil and misguided, though...

    Barack H. Obama 666 Pennsylvania Ave Washington, DC 20006 Dear Sir, I cannot tell you how much we appreciate your budget cuts, your cancellation of the space shuttle and any replacement launch vehicle for it, forcing us to rely on Russian Soyuz ships and their space program, which cant even seem to dock with the ISS Space Station.

(The question is especially common among Jews, since we're sort of white and used to success at other jobslaw, medicine, swimming.) But now that a half-African man with Muslim ancestors has defeated, for the presidency, an...
